The death of Rodney Corse occurred at the Avalon House last Friday night at about five of grip, from the affects of which disease he has been confined to his bed less than a week.

He was well known in this place and Stowe, where in years past he was known as the "veteran stage driver", haven driven between Morrisville and Stowe, and onto Mansfield Mountain for many years. His last position in the stage business was at Bethel, nine years ago, when he drove a route for Sheriff Paul Tinkham. For the past year or more he has made his home at the Avalon.

He was born at Bakersfield and served in the Civil War in Companies D. and B. 5th Vermont Volunteers. He is survived by three children, A. R. Corse of Waterbury, W. N. Corse and Mrs. Jesse Loomis of Cambridge, all of whom was present at the funeral.

Funeral services were held at the Avalon Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev P. A. Smith of the Methodist Church officiating. The bearers were Geo. A. Cheney, Geo. Bridge, A. A. Niles, W. N. McClintock. The remains were placed in the vault at Pleasant View Cemetery. There was a good attendance, among the numbers being 22 members of J. M. Warner Post GAR.
